We have come to the end of an era. Today, we want to announce that Neferiu Records is shutting its doors.
In 2000, we released our first compilation of music with the purpose of presenting our rhythms to the world. In the past 13 and a half years, we’ve proudly stood behind 70 prime examples of what harnessed creativity and passion sounds like. Our release catalogue has danced all over the lines drawn up around hip hop and electronic music and we are forever indebted to the legions of fans who have supported our incredibly talented roster over the past decade-plus.
It is because of those amazing fans, friends, family, djs, dancers, producers, emcees, vocalists and instrumentalists that Neferiu exists at all, and for that I personally want to thank each and every one of you, and assure you from the bottom of my heart that your support gave my own life purpose & it has been an honour to try and pay that support forward to the artists
who have graciously blessed the Neferiu catalogue with their pristine audio artwork.
I want to send my deepest gratitude to Ricca Razor Sharp for the undying passion he gives his music and the sheer strength & will to achieve success at something he is so painfully good at. Ricca, your intelligence, spirit and drive are infinitely inspiring, thank you for everything you’ve done both for me and for Neferiu Records. I also want to thank each and every member of Audible Intelligence. With you guys, I believe we were able to plant some seeds in Calgary’s Hip Hop scene together—seeds that you are still cultivating today. I’ll never forget those first few shows. Your friendship and support is forever appreciated.
It is now time to move on and begin a new chapter. While this website will remain online to preserve any chance of Neferiu’s legacy, we have decided to symbolically make today’s release our final album release.
And with that… Peace.
